HUMAN (2015)

HUMAN (2015)
What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight? That we laugh? Cry? Our curiosity? The quest for discovery? Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Watch the 3 volumes of the film and experience #WhatMakesUsHUMAN. Part 1 deals with the themes of love, women, work and poverty. Part 2 deals with the themes of war, forgiving, homosexuality, family and life after death. Part 3 deals with the themes of happiness, education, disability, immigration, corruption and the meaning of life. All three parts will play automatically one after the other, but you can also skip to each part using the control buttons under the player. 5 years after the success of ‘Home’, seen by more than 600 million people, and following the ‘7 billion Others’ project, Yann Arthus-Bertrand designed this film as a unique feature film : HUMAN Like every story, this one has a beginning.

2012: Time For Change (2010) "2012: Time for Change" presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

Stark warning from ex Bank of England regulator 19th November 2015 In an important speech given at the Finance Watch conference in Brussels on Tuesday, Robert Jenkins — a former member of the Bank of England’s financial policy committee — highlighted the dangers of a two-tier justice system in which senior bankers are effectively ‘above the law’. He also said that 47 banking scandals and the feeble nature of most post-crisis financial reforms suggest that governments around the world would be ill-advised to cave in to the demands of bankers and finance sector lobbyists seeking a return to ‘business as usual’ Jack the Giant Killer - comic story part 1 Students like reading comics. Comics are often the only thing students read. When I started an extensive reading project last year, students did not mind reading comics, however when we moved to short stories, more than half of them stopped reading and started to hate the programme. On the basis of this experience I have prepared a fairy tale comic for students to read. To be able to read a text and understand it, it is essential that you know the words. The more words you know the more you can enjoy the text.

Sherlock Holmes story Sherlock Holmes – Love your neighbour My students like watching films in English. But normal films are too long to watch in lessons and short clips are often too difficult to watch. The Economics of Happiness (2011) Economic globalization has led to a massive expansion in the scale and power of big business and banking. It has also worsened nearly every problem we face: fundamentalism and ethnic conflict; climate chaos and species extinction; financial instability and unemployment. There are personal costs too.
